After eleven months of challenges to artists and designers, with over 200 artists submitting more than 700 works, the University of Western Australia’s 3D Art and Design Challenge is drawing to a close with the call for entries in the final August Round. Entries will be accepted until the end of the month, but competitors are urged to submit as soon as possible, to allow visitors the maximum amount of time to view (and vote for) the works displayed.
Entries can be submitted here: http://slurl.com/secondlife/UWA/63/134/250 – where further details of conditions and prizes will be found.
The theme is simply IMAGINE, and the organisers urge: “Blow us away!”
